Got the 2019 Bob calendar cover finished faster that I anticipated. Seems funny to pt so much work into something most people will only see twice: once when the put the calendar up and once when they take it down. But, hey… it keeps me off the streets, right?
Here is the cover as a work-in-progress. It’s ink on bristol. Bill Watterson was/is a very traditional cartoonist so I keep the coloring non-digital. I start with markers and do accents with gouache and colored pencil. I like all the covers that I’ve done… but I think this one is already special.
Here are the covers from previous years…
I’m hoping to complete the inside calendar art soon. I’ll keep everyone posted when the calendar will be available for purchase.
Thank you to everyone for your CANDY CORN MADNESS entries. The first winner is… no one. So many people entered a candy corn sunflower/flower that it wouldn’t be fair to pick just one person. But, for so many people to submit this the idea HAS to be good, right?
